Chapter 3 The Danger of a Single Story (Speech)


Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, (born September 15, 1977, Enugu, Nigeria), a Nigerian writer whose work focused on the Biafran war in Nigeria in the late 1960's. 
At a young age, Adichie, the fifth of six children, moved with his parents to Nsukka, Nigeria. A diligent student from an early age, he discovered Things Fall Apart by novelist and co-founder Igbo Chinua Achebe. After studying medicine for a while in Nsukka, in 1997 he moved to the United States, where he studied communications and political science at Eastern Connecticut State University (B.A., 2001). Dividing his time between Nigeria and the United States, he obtained a master's degree in writing writing from Johns Hopkins University and studied African history at Yale University.

Summary of The Danger of a Single Story

Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, a Nigerian writer and orator, introduces herself as a storyteller who wishes to share a few personal anecdotes on "The Danger of a Single Story," as she calls it. She grew up in a middle-class Nigerian family. Her mother worked as an administrator and her father was a professor. She began reading books when she was four years old, and at the age of seven, she began creating stories with crayon illustrations. She primarily read children's books from the United States and the United Kingdom, resulting in a single storey about books in her mind. She believed that books should, by their very nature, contain foreign characters and should deal with topics that the author was unfamiliar with. a personal relationship However, she realised her error when she had the opportunity to read books by African authors such as Chinua Achebe and Camara Laye. She discovered that females with kinky hair and chocolate-colored skin might be characters in literature after reading African-American books. She only had one tale to tell about Fide, their houseboy. 
Her mother had told her a lot about Fide's family's poverty. She thought he and his family were destined for poverty and lacked any other skills. When she went to his residence, she discovered wonderfully designed coloured raffia baskets made by his brother. Then she realised she'd been telling herself a lie about Fide and his family. Adichie was 19 years old when she published her first book. She moved to America to finish her studies at a university there. Her American companion only knew one African storey. She thought Africa was just a lovely environment, and that all Africans were impoverished, illiterate tribal people. Adichie's flawless English astounded her roommate, who had no idea English was Nigeria's official language. Adichie's American professor had a single African narrative as well. One person said Adichie's characters were not truly Afi-can. Afi-ican authors' characters should be illiterate and hungry in each single novel; they should not be educated and wealthy enough to drive cars. Adichie had a nice childhood in a close-knit family, but she also went through some difficult times in her life. Her grandfathers died in camps for refugees. 
Polle, her cousin, died owing to a lack of medical attention. Okoloma, her best friend, died in a plane disaster. Finally, in her speech, Adichie states that single stories produce stereotypes, which are not untrue, but are incomplete. They turn a single storey into the only one.
